Welcome to ehealthforum,
Withdrawal bleeding usually occurs within 5-7 days of taking the emergency contraceptive indicating that the pill has worked (which may not occur if the pill has been taken very close to your last period). The bleeding that you experience could be this withdrawal bleeding. Since the emergency contraceptives contain high doses of hormones, these can disrupt the normal hormonal and period pattern. The current symptoms (missed periods, sore nipples, abdominal cramps, bloating, increased tiredness, backpain) that you describe could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, look for development of any other new symptoms. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
